Gatsby’s guests admire his Rolls – Royce, his marble swimming pool, his station-wagon and his “corps of caterers” the alliteration of this emphasizes how many caterers Gatsby has. The description of what Gatsby has prepared for the parties he holds shows conspicuous consumption. The repetition of the different types of alcohol Gatsby serves to his guests’ echoes that he is disobeying the law in order to have fun. Since prohibition had started in 1920 and The Great Gatsby was published in 1925 it had been going on for 5 years. “Most of his female guests were too young to know one from another.” This shows that he liked to have young women at his parties and that prohibition had been enforced for a long time.
Those gossips said “Gatsby had killed someone in the past.” and “He was a German spy.” that Nick had heard in Gatsby’s party, the original source in the book was from different guests shared the party time with Nick in Chapter III; but in the movie, we had all of them from Myrtle’s sister, Catherine, who was once attended to Gatsby’s party, shows more comments about Gatsby in the movie then the book. Then, the movie editor created new faces to refill this part, those origins guests— two girls chatting with Jordan Baker— was transfer to three young men who attracted by her and seem Nick as an unqualified competitor. The second different part is the details about Myrtle’s party. In the book, we have few dialogues carry in this apartment party, those between in Myrtle and Tom with McKee couple, between in Nick with McKees’ is all deleted. In movie, we couldn’t know that Ms. McKee is longing for Myrtle’s dress and how Myrtle reacts in haughty.
Write some of the ways Fitzgerald tells the story in Chapter 3 of ‘The Great Gatsby’ Fitzgerald depicts the lavish lifestyle and heightened characterisation with a detailed description of Nick’s first encounter of a party hosted by Gatsby and the meeting of Gatsby himself. The use of poetic prose, materialistic symbolism and gossipy dialogue allows Fitzgerald to continue to entice the reader with the developed plot in chapter 3. In chapter 3, Nick’s unreliable narrative is represented with the influence of alcohol, ‘I had taken two finger bowls of champagne and, the scene had changed before my eyes.’ This implies to the reader that Nick’s vision is distorted, ‘changed before my eyes’, indicating that the recollection of events may not be accurate, which is a common feature of an unreliable narrator. The hazy recall is hinted at with the mention of ‘glasses bigger than finger bowls’ which contrasts with the later comment ‘I had two finger bowls of champagne’ demonstrating blurred memories affecting the plot presented to the reader. The narrative device of gossipy dialogue is used to depict Gatsby’s character and present a heightened sense of mystery and drama surrounding the perplexity of the protagonist.
HOW DOES FITZGERALD TELL THE STORY IN CHAPTER THREE? Following on from the previous chapters where we were introduced to all the main characters, this chapter is structurally separated into two parts. The first focuses on a lavish party thrown by Gatsby and it is here we witness Nick becoming a participant. In the second part of the chapter, we gain a general context of Nick, our intrafictional narrator’s day to day life. As before, Nick remains our retrospective narrator, “reading over what I have written so far” and Fitzgerald continues to present Nick as an outsider, an observer, listening in.
Catherine, Myrtle’s sister, says that “he’s a nephew or a cousin of Kaiser Wilhelm” and claims that that is how he got his fortune. This can also indicate that Gatsby might suffer the same fate as his uncle/cousin because he might do something similarly rash. The conversation at Gatsby’s party between Jordan, Lucille and her friend contained many of the well-known rumours about Gatsby. The connection between him being a “German spy” and having “killed a man once” is a veil upon his true character and past actions. These rumours also foreshadow that he will die epically because of the vendetta he has drawn.
Write about the ways in which Fitzgerald tells the story in chapter 7 of the novel. Chapter 7 is quite the iconic chapter in Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’. Right from the start of the chapter, we as the reader see a colossal change in the protagonist that is Jay Gatsby. His reasons being the fact that Daisy – his old, reconciled love – has started to visit his house more often. Gatsby’s lifestyle that consisted of lavish parties and amount of unnecessary servants are no more, as his attention is now focussed on Daisy Buchanan.
